2019 Summer Food Service Program!
Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. Children who aren’t hungry learn better, act better and feel better. The Summer Food Service Program helps children get the nutrition they need during the summer. During the school year, more than 18 million children receive free and reduced-price meals at school. During the summer, that number drops to about 3 million.
Summer Food Service Programs provide nutritious breakfast and lunch meals to all children and, when coupled with recreation and tutoring programs, are of a great benefit to them.
Are there any qualifications to participate in the Summer Meal Program?
Any child between 1–18 years of age will receive a meal at NO CHARGE!
Adults can purchase a meal at a great value.
Do I need to register my child to participate? What are your rules?
No, registration is not required. Those wishing to eat a nutritious breakfast or lunch should just come to a summer meal school during serving times.
The rules are simple:
- Adults may not eat off a child’s plate.
- All meals must be eaten on site.
Colorado Springs School District 11 Food & Nutrition Services is also excited to be partnering with Care & Share Food Bank to offer the D11 Farm Fresh Market on select dates throughout the summer, which allows families to take home a FREE bag of fruits, vegetables and other items to any family that wishes to participate. Note that an adult must accompany children picking up food.
